Hi All -
My name is Michael Boyink - a past member of the HARC. Really
past...:) Good to see some familiar names yet in the message archive.
I joined the list because I need a bit of help. I came across my old
Icom 2AT 2 meter rig in the basement tonight. I haven't cracked open
the box in at least 10 years, and decided I should sell it for
whatever it's worth these days - which looks to be about $30-$50 on
I wanted to make sure it still works, though, so plugged it in and
tried to bring up the 706 repeater as best I could remember how. All
I got was static though - no little beep like I remember from years
I nosed around on the club's website a bit, and saw some things about
tone/carrier access that I didn't understand and it made me wonder --
this old Icom is still able to hit the repeater?
Any help is appreciated!
And since I know some of you will ask - my Dad (KJ8C) and mom are
down in Arizona doing some Jeeping in the desert. In a couple of
weeks they'll be back in their winter place in Texas, where dad can
be reached by email at bob@...
Thanks in advance...
